terrorist attacks on the s tos states and to save american live lives the united states government conducts targeted strikes against specific al quaid terrorists and sometimes using remotely piloted aircraft often referred publicly as drones. i'm here today, because president obama has instructed us to be more open with the american people about these efforts. >> okay. general clark, that is -- it is as straight forward as you can imagine, the president's spokeman saying we are using drones here, and the president instructed him to tell the american people about it, and will drone attacks become an issue in the con exthet of tkoc campaign this is. >> no sh, they are more in the support of the president's defense policy, and when i say take it off of the table, i don't mean take it off of the table for the president, but the republicans cannot use it against him. they have no foreign policy position other than to say democrats are traditionally weak, and he is not weak. so now, let's get it on the republican failures on the domestic side, and that is where the campaign will go based on a ver

this week make? >> well, an enormous difference. the president of the united states has done what we lekt presidents to do, put the morale leadership out there in support of freedom and families and what is important is how he did it. he sat and talked about conversations with gay friends, with gay staffers and with his own family and talked about he and michelle talking with their daughter sasha and malia who talked with their parents about their classmates and the gay parents they have, and the president said i listened to my daughters and i thought, they would never understand why classmates of their family should be treated unfairly. >> well, that is interesting, because sarah palin's daughter bristol palin actually critiqued the president on exactly that aspect of his discussion with robin roberts saying that he was sort of listening to the teenagers and what sort of father would govern by listen toing to the teenagers, but it did feel like there was an enormous difference that the president was setting between himself, and mitt romney in listening to his aide who is openly gay immed

for romney. these are states with high populations of black voters who come in, not from the united states, from the caribbean and africa. 10% of the black population in the u.s. is foreign born, so it may not only be a strategy to appease white voters, but i would not discount the possibility that this is a sincere level on some level to turn a small number of voters that could make the difference. >> the battle grown states, a small percentage or dampening the enthusiasm, part of what the pivot is it going to be, he needs president obama to galvanize conservatives, the anti obama vote, but wants to tamp down any sort of residual 2008 enthusiasm that brings a lot of folks to the polls. virginia would be a key example. and i just remember, we were talking about philadelphia, that it was that -- it was that great question about pensyl-tucky in the context of the 2008 primary, and the question of what was pennsylvania as a state going to do? w >> yes, where were they going to do i was going with cal penn to little city centers. obama didn't have to be there we just had to talk about him. and

up against segregation. they launched the movement for civil rights in the united states. through the use of history, the first lady reminded us that equality isn't for some, it's for everyone. and some republicans are starting to get the hint. sort of. even before yesterday's speeches in a leaked memo, a top republican polster urged his party to take a different stand on same sex marriage, saying as people who pronote personal responsibility, family valleys, stability and emphasize freedom and limited government, we have to recognize it means freedom for everyone. this includes freedom to decide how you live and to enter into relationships of your choosing. the freedom to live without excessive interference of the regulatory force of government. while the tone is for limited government, it is also a wakeup call for the party to embrace the rising tide of support for marriage equality and stop making the love lives of some part of public political discourse versus a basic private right. with me at the table, and thee a butler, professor from university of pennsylvania. michael tom

and girls clubs all over the united states so that's so near and dear to my heart to have them expand in that way. but it's so important. just in the growth of our minds, as children, and bodies. >> and 13 is actually a late bloomer for a ballerina? >> yes, very late. >> looking at the lovely children in the package before, and they are little tiny people and usually by six or seven, we determine whether or not you have the talent to be in the nutcracker. how at 13 did you discover that this was both your talent and passion? >> it definitely discovered me. i had never seen a ballet, i knew nothing about it, and i had a teacher that reached out to me and introduced me to the world of classical ballet, and she saw potential in me and knew i had what it took to be a professional dancer, so in four years, i committed myself completely to it, and four years later, i was dancing for american ballet theater. it's very rare, our bodies nit rally have to be molded assith growing, before the body changes, so i was meant to do it. >> and yet even as you say that, i was meant to do it, and the se

social policy and why the united states is fourth among the fourth of standards of living and even though i did not mind that it is under dispute that my president is a big spender, for the those reasons. so with me at the table is steve kornacki a msnbc contributor and writer for the salon and joy-ann reid and joining me from stanford, connecticut, the author of that report rex nutti nutting. >> first, respond to your criticism that the president's spending simply reaches the wrong conclusion? >> well, people have quibbled with my numbers, but i still don't believe i got it wrong in a major way, because it does not change the story at all that spending accelerated before obama took office with the t.a.r.p. bailout and with the expansion of unemployment benefits and medicaid and all of the other things that happened when masses unemployment hits, but really since then, spending has been on a really flat trajectory. even though we have had the stimulus, and the auto bailouts and we've had lots of unemployment benefits paid out, spending is really not growing at all since he took office. >>

character be a part of how we decide who will be the president of the united states? is it a fair basis for judging? >> sure. i think in me different facets or applications, character matter. the moral form of it in terms of whether or not your leader is somebody you can trust, also the way somebody who's in a position of authority has to handle their decision-making, and do they have a proper process and background to make it. sauchb that's what i've about found in covering five. >> this is true for the challenger. the incumbent has the record, the four years, so the challenger can critique the sitting president based on what that president has done over the course of the past four year, but the challenger, i mean obviously it's about certainly what they've done in the past but it is also primarily about judgment, about decision, about character. >> sure. we define character differently. we give bill clinton a pass on moral issues an we go after gerald ford because character means that he for gave president nixon on our behalf without asking us. we judge character very differently. we
